Hi Folks,

I would like to confirm with you some terminology.


A .xpl file is the:
   - pipeline definition
   - workflow definition
   - process definition

(Any of these terms may be used)



Calabash and Calumet are:
   - pipeline engines
   - workflow engines

(Any of these terms may be used)



The XML files that are processed are the:
   - cases

(This is the term used by the Workflow Management Coalition [1])



XProc Reference Model:

Do you agree with these terms, and with the reference model?
